I have crocheted these fingerless gloves/mittens or wrist warmers longer from the wrist to keep the arms warm too and so they can easily be tucked under coats, sleeves etc, to keep out the winter chill.
They are made in one piece so their are no seams to irritate. The yarn is a chunky yarn for gloves that are thick and warm, just what you need in the winter months.
The yarn is a mix of blues and turquoise with some green and plum mixed in which adds to the beauty of these unusual gloves.
The stitch produces a closer weave than usually found with crochet and an added stretchability to fit many sizes.
